Tom Banks (born 18 June 1994) is an Australian professional rugby player who currently plays for the Brumbies in the Super Rugby. He has represented Australia in international rugby. Banks started his Super Rugby career with the Queensland Reds in 2015.[2][3] He has played in the National Rugby Championship for Queensland Country and the Canberra Vikings. His preferred position is fullback or wing.

Early years

Thomas Banks was born in Brisbane, Queensland.[1] He attended school at Brisbane Boys' College during which time he represented Queensland at schoolboy rugby in 2011 and 2012. He moved on to play for the University of Queensland in the Queensland Premier Rugby competition from 2013.

Rugby career

In 2014, Banks played for the Queensland Reds at under 20 level and was also a member of their wider training squad. He didn't make the senior squad for the following season, but did manage to earn his first cap as a substitute in a match against the Brumbies at Suncorp Stadium. In 2015 and 2016 he played for Queensland Country in the National Rugby Championship.[4]

Banks missed out on selection for the Reds 2016 Super Rugby squad. Despite this, he picked up a second Super Rugby cap in the final match of the 2016 season against the Rebels.[2][4]

He signed a one-year Super Rugby deal with the Brumbies for the 2017 season.[5] After impressing in his first season of play for the Brumbies,[6] Banks was called up to join the Australia national team squad later that year to replace the injured Dane Haylett-Petty.[7] He was also selected by former Grand Slam-winning coach Alan Jones in the Barbarians squad to play the Wallabies at Allianz Stadium in late October 2017.[8]
